A pair of “Conister” candlesticks by Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co. This pair has unusual hand hammering to the base of both candlesticks. These elegant candlesticks are an iconic Knox design from around 1899. Featured in the Studio in March 1900, they were credited to Rex Silver who headed the Silver Studios for which Knox worked. We now know that these are certainly a Knox design, based on their style and the Manx name, “Conister”, given to the candlesticks on the original design drawing that survives at the V&A. Conister is a small island and folly off the coast of the Isle of Man. See images. One candlestick is dated Birmingham 1905, for the other the date mark, in a different position, is rubbed. Both sconces are removable and unmarked.
Good.See comments on the hallmarks.
